Short biography

Helwig Hauser graduated from Vienna University of Technology, Austria, in 1995 with the degree of a ''Dipl.-Ing.'' (~MSc) in computer science.  In 1998, after research on flow visualization, he received the degree of a ''Dr.techn.'' (~PhD) from the same university (see below for a link to the thesis). 

    He worked as a teaching assistant, then as an assistant professor at the Institute of Computer Graphics [1] at Vienna University of Technology from 1994 until 2000.  Afterwards, Helwig Hauser joined the newly founded VRVis Research Center [2], also in Vienna, Austria, as a key researcher in visualization.  In 2003, he became the scientific director of VRVis [2]. 

    In 2004, Helwig Hauser was entitled a ''Privatdozent'' at the Vienna University of Technology after his successful Habilitation (see below for a link to the thesis).  In 2006, he was awarded with the prestigous Heinz Zemanek Award [3] for this work. 

    Since 2007, Helwig Hauser is professor at the University of Bergen, Norway, where he is leading the (still young) research group on visualization [4].  During the first four years, the group grew to a size of 15 researchers, working on projects in medical visualization, the visualization of geological data and models, flow visualization, the visualization of biological data, marine data visualization, and others. 

    Helwig Hauser's interests are diverse in visualization and computer graphics, including interactive visual analysis, illustrative visualization, and the combination of scientific and information visualization, as well as many other related topics.  Helwig Hauser is also particularly interested in the application of visualization to the fields of medicine, geoscience, climatology, biology, engineering, and others.
